The inFlow team has been hard at work and it's time once again to release the new and improved inFlow to the public! Thank you to all our customers who participated in the beta test and helped to make this the best version of inFlow yet! This release incorporates the changes which have been addressed over the past few beta's as well as as few new features to make it even easier to use inFlow.

With this release we have improved the way inFlow imports your information from outside sources, it will even confirm changes made during the import.

When transferring stock you will now have the ability to add by location and there is now a tool which allows you to right click on a table item and choose "fill down" to quickly change many items in a table (eg. when choosing the location from which to pull your inventory during a sales order).

Sept 18, 2010 - Version 2.2.3 released!

It's time for a new release and this is the most exciting one yet! The developers have been hard at work on the latest version of inFlow, and they've incorporated many of the suggestions we've been receiving through our forum and from our customers. The result is an exciting new step in inFlow's development: the ability to handle multiple currencies!

The new functionality has been integrated into the inFlow you know and love so as to minimize changes to your user experience. You can now set up default currencies other than your own for vendors or customers you have in other markets and inFlow will do all the calculations for you based on the conversions you enter. What's more, you can run reports that reflect both the forign currency and your own and even see an order total in your own currency by holding your mouse over the numbers.

There are plenty more exciting improvements to the program so check out the full release notes of improvements below. It is important to be sure that you're data is prepared to move to the new version before you install and convert. For more on the conversion process and new features click here: http://www.inflowinventory.com/KnowledgeBase/questions/210/

Sept 3, 2010 - Beta Version 2.2.2 released!

This is a small beta release that fixes a number of issues encountered in the previous beta release 2.2.1.0. We have corrected the date drop-down selection issue that users were experiencing and we've corrected a bug whereby duplicate lines could show up on Sales and Purchase orders. You can also now use your barcodes in custom documents. This is a free update for everyone; if you are already on version 2.2.1.0 beta you should definitely update. You can do so in one of two ways:

1. Via the program by checking for updates if you have previously signed up for beta release updates (Main Menu > Settings > About inFlow > "Check for Updates")

2. By going here: http://getsatisfaction.com/inflow_inventory/topics/updates_to_beta_version_2_2_released

New Features

  • Added Maldivian and Jordinian currencies
  • Custom documents can now include the barcode field

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where the last item could get duplicated in sales orders
  • Fixed a bug where the count sheet wouldn’t print
  • Fixed the date selection drop down bug
  • Corrected the symbol used in the Bangladeshi currency
  • Fixed a bug where the dashboard could crash inFlow if the inFlow installation had some problems

Usability Changes

  • Set updates so that only Administrators in inFlow can update inFlow to the newest version. Non-administrators will be notified approximately once a month if there are updates.
  • PO Status report will now be shown in landscape format, to allow more space
  • The Dashboard will now show the Ending Cost of your inventory (showing the last time period's value) rather than adding up all the previous ones

Aug 6th, 2010 - Beta Version 2.2.1 released!

Please keep in mind if you decide to update that this version is a beta version and that we ask users to notify us of any minor issues they find while employing the program as this release is not yet in its final stage. Version 2.2 of inFlow adds multiple-currency support, so you can charge customers and pay vendors in their own currencies within inFlow. There's also a ton of other improvements and bug fixes. You can read the full release notes here, or just update your copy of inFlow.

Two things have changed in inFlow that might take you a little while to get used to. We're sorry for any inconvenience this might cause, but we strongly believe in continually improving. It's probably a good idea to do the update when you have an hour or two of free time. You can always go back to the old version as well (as long as you keep the backup file inFlow makes when you update your database).

First off, this new version requires you to select a currency from inFlow's existing list of currencies (previously it would default to your Windows settings). If you're using a currency that inFlow doesn't yet support, send us an email to support@inflowinventory.com and we'll get you set up within a few days.

Secondly, we've also made a change to the way vendor prices are saved. inFlow no longer has a field for Last Purchase Price; instead, each vendor's price is remembered separately whenever you choose to purchase from that vendor. It is very important to be sure you're clear on the changes before you update so please take a look at the article below before downloading.

And there you have it, inFlow can now handle sales and purchasing in multiple currencies, all while tracking your inventory and allowing you to keep track of your sales in your own currency!

Download the newest beta version today!

Features

  • inFlow now supports multiple currencies, along with setting up exchange rates. You can now set different sales and purchase orders to different currencies, and set prices in different currencies. There are many changes made throughout the system to support this. (e.g. you can get reports that show you everything converted into your home currency, or in the local currency.)
  • You can now choose whether to save information (e.g. prices) entered into a Purchase Order as the Vendor's default
  • Sales Taxes can now display up to 3 decimal places in tax rates.
  • Added the Remarks and Quantity columns to the Movement History tab of the Product screen.
  • When using the default method in Reorder Stock, for products that are out-of-stock and have Reorder Point set to 0, it'll now respect the Reorder Quantity.
  • You can now initialize the Moving Average cost for a product right from the product page. (Subsequent changes will need to go through the dialog.)

June 10th, 2010 - Version 2.1.1.6 released!

We're now releasing version 2.1.1.6 (this makes the updates in the past two beta releases available to the public). This release focuses on allowing you to customize your invoices and other documents, giving you more choice in presenting a professional image to customers and vendors.

We've also made inFlow easier to use by giving you an option to automatically save customer information entered into a Sales Order to be used as the default next time. Download this new release for free now!

May 14th, 2010 - Version 2.1.1 released!

This is a small beta release that fixes a number of issues encountered in the previous beta release 2.1.0. We have improved the speed and reliability of the custom documents, as well as enabled a few other columns to be used, like custom fields for products.

May 4th, 2010 - Beta Version 2.1.0 released!

Please keep in mind, if you do decide to update, that this is a beta release and we ask that users notify us of any minor issues they run into while employing the program as it is not yet in its final stage. This update focuses on allowing you to customize the invoices and other documents you send to customers and vendors from inFlow. You can now choose from our three template styles available through the print settings and shown below:

What's more, if you have Microsoft Word, you can create your own custom documents (e.g. envelopes or custom invoices) and have inFlow integrate them using mail merge. For more information on how the custom documents function works please visit the knowledge base here: http://www.inflowinventory.com/KnowledgeBase/categories/User+Manual/Beta+Version+2.1.0/

Another new feature is that when you save a Sales Order where you've updated the Customer Information, inFlow will ask if you want to save this information to the Customer record. This lets you make changes directly in the Sales Order and have it remembered for the next order. There are also a fair number of other bugfixes and improvements to make inFlow easier to use. You can see the full list of changes below.

This update is free for everyone. Get it now!
